Snowflakes are a lot like children: unique and special individually, but annoying when hundreds of them pile up on your lawn. Make the most of it with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $15 for evening snow-tubing passes for two, valid after 5 p.m. (a $29.98 value)
- $49 for an individual snowboarding and snow-tubing season pass (a $99.99 value)
After visitors careen down the long slopes’ machine-made snow in provided snow tubes or on home-brought snowboards, they can take the tow rope back up to the top of the long slopes for more goes. Optional helmet rentals are available for $2 each. Season passes grant access to unlimited snowboarding and snow tubing during the 2012–2013 season and 10 per cent discounts at The Water’s Edge Restaurant.
The entire year is filled with screams at Adrenaline Adventures, where gravity and nerves of steel combine to produce a bounty of thrilling activities. In the summer, a cable-wakeboarding system zips riders along as they’re pulled by an overhead cable system while standing atop wakeboards. Groups can bond as they challenge the ropes course and zipline together, or take to beach-volleyball courts for a few rounds of bumps, sets, and spikes. During the winter, a snow machine fills the slopes of hills dedicated to snow tubing and snowboarding, rather than requiring riders to wait for adequate snowfall or use up their genie wishes for snow.
The staff of Adrenaline Adventures may love extreme activities, but they’re equally dedicated to safety. Sesitec—a German company that specializes in creating cable-wakeboarding systems—designed and installed the system, and Canadian officials certified each of the towers. In addition to yearly inspections from the Office of the Fire Commissioner for Manitoba, the staff works to maintain the system with daily maintenance, weekly tests, and their own annual checkups. The ropes course and zipline equipment are similarly cared for, and the staff regularly grooms the snowboarding and snow-tubing slopes to keep them free of sharp edges and unsafe bumps.
